Recorded in 1982 by Whitesnake- and it wasn’t a hit until it was re-recorded 5 years later. Hard to believe this was a #1 hit. One of the worst concerts I’ve ever been to- the girl I was seeing at the time wanted to see them so- I bought the tickets and we went- it was bloody awful. Certainly not the worst concert I’ve been to that honor goes to another concert I didn’t want to go to- Kenny G- [Michael Bolton’s younger brother] a couple years later. At least it was G by himself and not on the infamous ‘Brothers’ Tour he did with Michael.

    • I might put that infamous Starship “We Built this City” and the super-duo superdud “Black and White” a bit below this one among #1 hits… but to me, it’s right up there. But obviously they had a whole lot of fans who felt differently!

    • In looking over the #1 hits of 1987- there were 29- there may be ten that I’d ever want to hear again. Overall a sorry lot.
